How your star sign affects your relationship
We’ve all heard about the language of love, but did you know that you and your partners star signs can impact how successful your relationship is – all the way from that first date, right through to the proposal.
Whether you’re one of the 280 million people dabbling in online dating or you’re opting for more traditional methods of meeting ‘the one’, you’ll want to make sure your relationship is future proof. One way to do that is by checking their star sign!
Read on to find out how your partner fairs up.
How your star sign affects getting together
The first date may have been a dream. You’ve been for dinner and feel that electric energy. Everything is looking positive, until you find out his star sign.
Although it may seem trivial, more people than you’d think will reconsider a date if they don’t believe the star signs are compatible.
According to research, 21% of couples consider astrological signs when choosing a partner. In fact, millennials are more likely than anyone to believe it affects their romance with 59% believing it plays a role in their relationships.
When it comes to choosing the perfect sign for you, astrologers believe that everyone has at least two signs they are compatible with. Aries, for example, thrive in relationships with Sagittarius and Libra, whilst Virgos are better paired with Pisces and Capricorn.
How star signs affect your love language
A core component of how star signs affect your relationship is how you show each other affection. If you’re not aligned, you may find that your relationships dwindle and fade out over time.
It’s commonly believed that there are five love languages: words of affirmation, acts of service, gift giving, quality time and physical touch. Some signs might see quality time watching TV or talking as their love language, while those with gift giving may prefer a diamond necklace or other present as a way to express their love.
Take the Leo, for example. They love gestures and flattering compliments as well as precious gifts. When you’re dating a Leo, you can expect to be showered with presents, but they will expect the same in return. If you’re not the same way inclined, you may find your relationship suffers.
This star sign incompatibility may be why in 2020 there were 103,592 divorces in England!
How star signs affect asking for their hand in marriage
It’s commonly accepted by astrological fans that someone’s star sign affects their personality. So, it’s important that if you’re planning a proposal, it’s been considered based on their star sign. For example, introverts may not be comfortable with public proposals, and extraverts may not be pleased with a low-key plan.
Taurus, Cancer, Virgo and Capricorn signs tend to be introverted, so a private and traditional affair is preferred to an outlandish, public proposal.
On the flip side, Aries, Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius and Aquarius signs love a sense of adventure, so feel free to go bold!
Choosing your ring
Once you’ve mastered the proposal, it’s time to choose a ring! It’s often a nice idea to choose a ring with their birth stone, or if you know their style, you can choose one that reflects their unique personality. Just remember that their star sign will often influence the ring they love.
According to F.Hinds research, Taurus, Cancer, Virgos and Capricorns prefer traditional rings, whereas other signs prefer a ‘statement’ piece. Research also found that the stone of choice can also be impacted by star sign, with Virgos suiting a clean and simple such as a blue sapphire or yellow agate whilst stand out gemstones are more in-line with Capricorns.
And there you have it! Whether you’re new to the dating game or are happily settled, considering your other half’s star sign can be a great way to keep the fire alive.
